Yes, I read most nights, often quite late with books that are 'oh, i'll just read one more chapter'
The time has come where the library book I choose has quite a bit to do with print size, space between lines,
Yes I love reading in bed! The only time it has ever put me to sleep was as a student trying to read really dull boring philosophy tomes. Best insomnia cure EVER.
Oh and recently I fell asleep reading A Big Book of Machines with my son..........
Aaaah! Yes!!!! I always read in bed ,I even used to read when walking to and from work!!! I think a book is an extension of my hands sometimes,as I always seem to be enjoying a book!! As my hobby is collecting antique and old books,it is little wonder that I read in bed each night!!
Almost always! I inherited insomnia from my father; he took pills - I read!! Mostly murder mysteries and if the book is riveting I'll get up to finish it so as not to disturb my sleeping spouse ... I read under the bedcovers as a child; devour books by the bushel and am going through the old favourites again ... there are about 7 books in and on my bedside cabinet - and a pair of glasses!
as a child under the bedcovers, just could not put a new book down, had to read it all at once, loved books they were my favorite presents for birthday or xmas, and no they never put me to sleep as I was usually caught, and the book would be taken away till next day.
And also our local newspaper. When I'm not reading, or on my laptop, I fall asleep in 1 minute. I let my husband have my laptop when it's charged up & he loves looking at Youtube, but he also reads for hours. He has different sleeping patterns, due to his 16 &1/2 years of shift-work, when he started the job, many, many years ago. (I know the question wasn't about him, but I thought I'd tell you anyway!)
Yes - I do. I have done ever since I was a child. I shared a room with my sister (who wasn't a reader) and it used to drive her mad when I read with the light on. I had to resort to a torch under the covers. I do not sleep well so reading fills some of the time during the night and helps to make me sleepy. It's great when I have a particularly good crime novel (ie Val McDermid, Karin Slaughter, Kathy Reichs et al).
Yes. I read in bed every night before I go to sleep. It does make me tired so I can never read for a long period of time. It just means that it takes me a long time to finish reading a book, but getting there is half the fun !!! I don't have time during the day to read , so it has to be just before I go to sleep.
Yes, but keep falling asleep and waking when I hear the book go "thump: as it hits the floor.
I give up after I have dropped the book about 8 times. How do you prevent falling asleep and dropping the book?
It is such a pain when I lean over to try and pick the book up, especially when I have fallen out of bed trying to get the book (fallen out of bed on at least 2 occasions),
Yes, every night.
In Winter, it is warmer & much less expensive to read books in bed, regardless of time of day or night. Recently, I bought a pair of Lying-Down Reading Glasses for the Summer (on-line, of course).
